After posting that last entry on taking photos of old Route 66 from the air, I was reminded of my favorite Route 66 historians, the Beck Brothers! You can check out some of their photos on Terry’s website.
I met them at Twin Arrows, east of Flagstaff, a few years ago. I always stop there and what a bonus it was to meet Terry and Don Beck on this trip. They know this old road so well. They gave me a copy of their “Route 66 Pocketbook” full of photos and facts. And I was given a good look at the hand-crafted teardrop trailer they had made. Exquisite.
And they told me I had to visit Two Guns, just up the road. Two Guns was the home of a petting zoo as well as the full service stop on the old road. I did stop, of course, and when they also showed up there we went in search of an old bridge they just saw from the interstate.
Then came a guided tour of the Apache Death Cave – something I would NOT have explored by myself!
Thanks again to Terry and Don for expanding my knowledge and experience of Route 66.
